We offer you a great idea for a neat handling of the corners of napkins, tablecloths, shawls, bed linen and other things. From this short master class, you will learn how to perform the perfect bend in the edge part of a rectangular product with your own hands. This advice is useful both for beginners and experienced seamstresses who are not familiar with this trick.
Step by step instructions are very simple. The first time processing the corners is best done with markup, and then you learn how to do it by eye.
What do we need?
- ruler and pencil (or stencil)
Measure out the required distance from the edges and perform a standard double hem. Smoothes the first hem.
Smoothed the second hem.
We open the fabric and make the markup in the form of a square. Mark an equilateral triangle in the corner. Cut off this part.
We return podgib into place.
Fold the corner inward. You can fix it with a pin.
We carry out the second podgib and smooth down.
It remains only to hem the edge with a minimum indentation.
Done! Beautiful, isn't it?
In this way, you can also handle the edges of towels and tacks. The seam is not only neat, but also reliable.
